“I want one on my desk at seven o’clock tomorrow morning.”

Here’s a little Easter present for our current/former military aviator readers. The title will make more sense after you’ve viewed the clip. IMO it’s eminently worth the 5-6 min of your time required. Remember: you can do anything . . . once. Enjoy.     Freakin’ avaitors – ya gotta love ’em. And yeah, it […]

A Superb Cover – and an Amazing Original

Got back from a long road trip a couple of days ago. And yeah, I guess that means this article is a musical “walkabout”. You have been warned. (smile) . . . I’ve previously discussed the Rolling Stones here at TAH. And yes, during the trip they were one of the artists whose music helped […]

Yer Weekend Chuckle: A “Thanks” for the Ages

| February 5, 2022 | 32 Comments

Johnny Cash was a legendary figure in American music. I’ve mentioned him previously in comments to articles at TAH, as well as featuring one of his late-career collaborations in this article. And yeah, that means I’m about to go on another music-related walkabout. You’ve been forewarned. But if you read on, I think you’ll get […]

Happy New Year

You want me to what??? It’s nearly next year. It’s been a strange, ridiculously inept period when nothing seems to make any sense, and the traditions we were raised with are being trampled by overgrown spoiled brat children who still throw temper tantrums and break things even if they’re old enough to vote. Oddly enough, […]

Repost:  A Modern Thanksgiving Tradition of Sorts

From several years ago. Happy Thanksgiving, all. —– Because of the date of the original incident, this song has become a minor Thanksgiving tradition on many modern radio stations. This should also bring back a few memories for our Vietnam-era readers; hopefully, at this point, the passage of time has made them reasonably mellow ones. […]

Last week troops were starving due to “food insecurity”, now they’re starving themselves in a “pervasive culture of eating disorders”

Last week I mentioned how the “DoD “all in” on combating “food insecurity” in the ranks. I linked in that article to the earlier discussion on what “food insecurity” means here; 1/5th of military families are starving!!!  Basically, you’re “insecure” about your food if you’ve ever eaten something ’cause you ran out of cash to eat […]

Remembering Thunderfingers – Redux

I’ve been listening to a bit of classic Who lately.  One of the albums I’ve listened to was their 1973 release Quadrophenia. Yeah, you guessed it:  what follows is another musical “walkabout”.  You have been warned.  (smile) . . . IMO Quadrophenia is generally the “forgotten” studio album from The Who’s peak decade (1969-1978).  The […]

Monday morning week in review

I had a busy weekend, so I’m just now catching up on all the stuff you all have been sending in. First up is an update on the South African armed courier badass Leo Prinsloo. You’ll recall he was the driver of the cash-in-transit truck that was ambushed and caught on video. We talked about […]
